NOTEBOOK: Douglas Dynamics Adds New Tech

Plow manufacturer integrates its TRACE edge technology into Western, Fisher, and SnowEx product lines.

Plow manufacturing parent company, Douglas Dynamics, has integrated its new TRACE edge technology, a terrain-response advanced cutting-edge system, into its Western, Fisher, and SnowEx product lines.

The patent-pending, terrain-response advanced cutting edge system is made up of independent 2-foot sections that move vertically, oscillate, and trip to accommodate contours and obstacles in the plowable surface. In addition, a ¾-inch cutting edge with carbide inserts provides durability for heavy-duty commercial applications. Self-leveling side plates also keep the TRACE edge in contact with the surface.

By working together, the manufacturers says the sections remove more snow, which reduces the amount of ice melting material needed on pavement surfaces. In addition, two greasing locations allow the operator to keep the components well lubricated for maximum performance.

The new cutting edge technology offers professional snow and ice managers peak snow removal performance on their most challenging jobs, said Andy McArdle, Director of Marketing – CSI at Douglas Dynamics.  

“And in an industry where you have no time to waste, the ease of attachment, operation and the best-in-class dealer network will help operators get more jobs done faster,” McArdle added.

Here’s how the technology addition breaks down into each company’s individual product offering.

WESTERN

FISHER
Fisher Engineering's new line of Storm Boxx pusher plows feature the patent-pending TRACE edge technology. Independent 2-foot sections move vertically, oscillate, and trip to contour to the plowable surface.

The Storm Boxx lineup of pusher plows come in 8-, 10-, 12-, 14-, and 16-foot widths. A common carrier attachment system makes them compatible with skid loaders, wheel loaders, tractors, and backhoe loaders.

SNOWEX
SnowEx upgraded its line of Power Pusher plows with the TRACE edge technology. This patent-pending system is made up of independent 2-foot sections that raise more than 1.5 inches and trip up to 30 degrees to accommodate contours and obstacles in the plowable surface.

The SnowEx Power Pusher is available in 8-foot and 10-foot widths while a common carrier attachment system makes them compatible with skid loaders, wheel loaders, tractors, and backhoe loaders.
